Watch the entire process of making sweet sorghum syrup—from pressing the raw cane using a horse-powered mill to cooking the juice into a rich, golden brown syrup. Enjoy some samples of sorghum syrup on freshly baked cornbread made from stone-ground cornmeal. There are also horse-drawn hayrides, activities for children, demonstrations of handicrafts, and a sorghum pressing and cookoff.
